Mateus moves to Dinamo Bucharest 2/26/2007
Angola midfielder Mateus Galiano da Costahas has ended his controversial stay in Portugal by joining Romanian club Dinamo Bucharest.

The 23-year-old moves from Gil Vicente in a deal worth US$350,000.

He signed a four-year deal on Friday that will keep him at the club until June 2011.

"I am so happy to have joined this great team as I know of the exploits of the club," Mateus said on Saturday.

"I can now leave my past behind me to help Dinamo win at trophies at home and in Europe."

Mateus was at a centre of a row, which disrupted the start of the Portuguese league in September and nearly led to the suspension of the country from international football.

The dispute started at the end of last season when Gil Vicente remained in the first division by a point, while Lisbon team Belenenses were relegated to the second division.

Belenenses accused Gil Vicente of playing Mateus despite his ineligibility.

Fifa regulations were violated when the dispute, though ''sporting'' in nature, was taken to a civil court to be settled.

This led Fifa, world football''s governing body, to threaten to expel Portugal from all international competition.

The Portuguese League demoted Gil Vicente to the second division and brought Belenenses back to the first in response.

Gil Vicente are still fighting their expulsion.
